Company Research Instructions

For this three- to five-page paper you will select a company that has been “in the news” for an OB-related issue and explore how this relates to the materials in course and the corporate strategy.  Similar to the way we look at cases in class, the paper should include a statement of the problem, discussion of the details, a discussion of how this problem relates to Organizational Behavior, and recommendations you might make based on this example.  You can and should use outside sources for this paper.  Please use footnotes for cited material. Any accepted footnote format is fine.  A bibliography should be included (not part of page count).

Here are some possible topics, or you can choose your own. 

·        
Telecommuting (Yahoo, Sun Microsystems)

·        
Benefits as a corporate strategy (Google)

·        
Holocracy (Zappos)

·        
Automation (Uber or Tesla – cars; Amazon – drones)

·        
‘Organizational Darwinism’ (Amazon)

·        
Controversial CEOs (HP-Fiorina, Apple-Jobs, etc.)

·
